This year’s presidential election is surely the most compelling contest in recent US history. Putting political divisions aside, we can all agree that timely access to relevant information could help voters to be properly informed when it comes time to vote. That’s why CNN and CA Technologies partnered with the goal of creating a mobile app that would keep voters educated and engaged throughout the election cycle. To achieve this, we needed to design an application architecture that could empower editors to publish news as it happens and enhance it with key statistics and multimedia content. In this session, you will see how we reached our goal by using APIs to integrate cloud-based Lambda functions with legacy on-premises infrastructure.
